Ride some gravel, hit a dirt trail, or sail over pavement all without changing tires with the Speed Ride Tire (Wire Bead).

Diamond tread down the center provides just enough grip for light off-road riding, while still rolling smoothly on the road or bike path. Shoulder lugs help keep the rubber side down when cornering as well. The Puncture ProTection layer helps keep out thorns or road debris and keep you rolling, so enjoy the next ride where ever it takes you.

The Speed Ride (Wire Bead) is available in Black/Reflex, 700c x 42mm.

Fast on tarmac and hardpack with less worry

Most riding on these tires has been on tarmac and dirt road in Michigan. The dirt roads are hard pack with many 15mm-35mm single loose stones scattered around. Even with 32mm tires, pinch flats happen hitting those. The 42mm Speed Rides give me a chance to look around and enjoy the view with less worry for tire saftey.

On tarmac they roll very easy and are quiet with a supple feel. This is a great priceperformance tire. Continental could do even better though if they would make a 42mm version of the Ultra Sport II folding.

Good tire for phoenix so far

I ride these tires on a CX bike on gravel, cement, dirt around phoenix and they handle well and absorb a lot of shock. They are quite big and do catch some wind though. The reflective whitewall is more profound than the pic shows which I like for city riding. I've seen several women glance at me and lower their shades will riding on these tires.

Grippy, and wonderful

I purchased the 42 size and was upgrading from a 38. There is a difference between the two and the 42's do weigh a little more (when inflated) but the 42's offer great traction both on dirt and street. The tread pattern is great and they are durable. I've been having these tires for a little over a month and no flats yet. I dont expect getting a flat anytime soon.
